THE CELLULAR PRACTICE CONCEPT
If you missed our introductory post for this practice concept, be sure to read through it here. This variation of sequence is based on traditional gridding and is structured as the following: AAAA, BAAA, ABAA , AABA, AAAB, BBAA, ABBA, AABB, BAAB, BBBA, ABBB, BABB, BBAB, BBBB. It’s a good idea to repeat each part of the sequence as needed before moving on to the next. SYNKD’s proprietary ‘Bar Isolation” function comes in handy here.
Double Paradiddles & Septupadiddles Exercise
"Septupa-what?!?" Yeah...we might have made that one up. We also made this exercise that, similar to last week's exercise, shifts between two different subdivisions (6s and 7s). This time we're using a double paradiddle sticking as our "A cell" with an added stroke for the septupadiddle (that name is starting to grow on us!). This one is sure to take you for quite a ride so go slowly and utilize the SYNKD "Bar Isolation" feature to work on trickier measures one or two at a time.
